Curious Cookie – sweet toothiness


Our panel of sweet tooths agree: “more, please.” How can something taste this good, and be good for us? We can attest to the wholesomeness and eminently edible qualities of 3 of their 4 lines, not having tasted the Sugar free/Low carb line.

All curious cookies feature natural or organic ingredients, zero grams trans fat, no hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats/oils, no chemicals, no genetically modified ingredients, no preservatives; and they’re Star D/Star K Kosher-certified. Here’s some of what’s in them — Plugra European style sweet cream cultured butter, unbleached flour, Madagascar bourbon vanilla extract, Bavarian Schokinag chocolate, and sulfate-free fruits grown in the USA. Unrefined evaporated cane juice is used in lieu of processed sugar — except in the sugar-free/low carb recipe, which uses Splenda. Check out their comprehensive, anatomy of a cookie for the complete lowdown on sweet toothiness.

curious cookie offers 4 lines of tantalizing flavors: Premium Gourmet, Muffin Top, Gluten Free, and Sugar Free/Lower Carbohydrate.

  • Premium Gourmet’s yummy flavors are: Ginger Cranberry, Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, Sugar ‘N Spice and to-die-for White Chocolate & Macadamia Nut or Chocolate Cherry. So flavorful, with out all the bad stuff.
  • Muffin Tops come in: Orange Cranberry, Blueberry, Strawberry and Berry Blast. So moist and rich.
  • Gluten-Free: (which are also lactose-free and casein-free) — Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Lemon Chocolate Chip, Ginger Cranberry and Chocolate Chip. For full-cookie-flavor.
  • Sugar Free/Low Carb: made with Splenda — Coconut, Ginger, Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Macadamia Nut and Mocha Chocolate.

Single serving packages easily tuck into your backpack, handbag, lunch box or glove compartment. Curious Cookies make a wonderful gift for any occasion — choose your favorite tin or basket. Treat yourself to a few boxes, by ordering @ or calling 877-986-6928 (yummy-2-U).

Green Golf Course – Club Pelican

Golf courses are notorious for their negative impact on the environment. Destruction of natural habitat, fertilizer run-off and the use of carcinogenic pesticides are just a few of golf’s sins. On the other hand, the sport and its rambling courses appear to be gaining in popularity every year; (yes, I’ve hit a few errant balls into the woods myself).

So what to do? Go green, like Greg Norman’s Pelican Club, voted Best Eco-Friendly Golf Course, (this is all relative). The Pelican Club, located in Caloundra, Australia, (unless you’re a local, you’ll need to cash-in some of those carbon offsets to get there) has developed a chemical-free approach to green maintenance, and has installed nutrient filtration zones to protect nearby environmentally-sensitive wetlands. Many American golf courses should take note.
